Ready to get sewing? This is what you will be working on this week.
After pairing up my strips, I began sewing them together. Below you can see groups of four strips sewn together, two matching WOF prints and two background strips alternating.
These are then subcut into 2 1/2” strips, as shown below.
I took eight of each unit and sewed them end to end, always pressing toward the dark. Then I sewed the two long strips together to form the checkerboard strips. All your seams should nest. Below you can see six sets finished.
The photo above shows 6 columns. So the assignment for this week, is to get this much done. Then you will be almost halfway!
BTW, here are great deal that end tonight at AccuQuilt .
I found this little machine on Facebook Marketplace last weekend. That’s about the only thing I use Facebook for. I got a cover for it, but no attachments. I did find a manual online. It sews a lovely stitch!
Daughter #2 gave me this. Isn’t it fun?
Found this fun fabric at Goodwill. Of course, it had to come home.
